I have been known by many names over the years but The Emperor has been the main one for the last 25 years so with the dawn of the Internet it seemed the most appropriate monicker to use (if for no other than reason to avoid confusion). This shouldn't be taken as evidence for any kind of insanity or megalomania - you'll have to work harder to pin those on me.

You can find my personal site at The Emperor dot org (although I haven't updated it in ages and can most often be found here).

Conflicts of interest. I've written for the Fortean Times and help out on their site, this does mean I have signed a contract with Dennis Publishing but am not au fait with all their catalogue so it might be possible that I infringe something by accident (just let me know and I'll fix it). Also my uncle is John Ash, my work on that article has been to provide sources and make sure the details are right (sometimes consulting with the family, although as far as I'm aware he doesn't even know about the page's existence) - again if there is a problem (or you have a question) let me know and I'll sort it out. Just in case it comes up I'm now a guest author on Neatorama and you can see my posts here.


My interest lie in strange phenomena and some of the media it spins off into (although due to conflicts of issues I have tended to be more hands off - working on comics, films and books and crossovers and spin-offs). Some of these are still stubs so the list also works as a little reminder list in case I need to go back and add more things (note this hasn't been updated in a while):






Mainly related to British comics (and their creators) and 2000 AD in particular and also where it crosses over into the world of the strange.

Other EditorsEdit

Just a few people doing covering similar areas and tracking it on their personal pages:

Separated at birthEdit

Editors with a scary similar set of interests to me:

  • ntnon - so close we could take it in turns living this life, freeing up loads of free time to start a cult or something


Some people have been nice enough to stop by and give me nice things which I will display here:

  The Barnstar of Diligence
For the diversity of fictional subjects for which you add consistently add valuable content to. Mister Fax 19:57, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

I award you this for your thoughtful, responsible editing, your diligence against vandalism, and your articulate comments in talk-page disputes. Congratulations from my humble self. --Tenebrae 06:05, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

To Emperor for little edits and big -- for great efforts in generally improving a variety of comics-related articles and for outstanding work striving to boost the number of articles of the highest quality. Keep up the fantastic work! Doczilla 07:22, 16 October 2007 (UTC))
